I'm still here!

Hello all! I apologize for my silence in the bloggosphere as of late. I spent the first two days of my summer vacation packing up my classroom and putting things away. My school is being used for summer literacy camp and I wanted to make sure that the guests in my classroom don't get into my stuff!

I'm mentally and physically exhausted and to top it off Mr. JB and I have headaches. He's been staining furniture for the new basement and the fumes are driving us batty! It also doesn't help that the new carpet has a very strong smell. The L.upron has really heightened my sense of smell and I've been getting a lot of headaches.

We're going to leave our house in hopes of clearing our heads. Canada is celebrating its 147th birthday today and we're going to partake in some of the festivities.

I promise a more interesting post later!


  1. Happy Canada Day!

    Isn't it crazy how the "new carpet smell" and all those new material smells are human-made chemicals floating into our air? I never used to be conscious of that. I don't like it either... And I can understand how those furniture staining fumes aren't helping. Enjoy the outdoors, and hope that the house airs out quickly!

    Enjoy the Canada Day festivities :-)

  2. I hope getting out and celebrating your Canadian heritage helps clear up the headaches!!

  3. Good to hear from you! How's the a/c? I'm hoping that it's all fixed.
